Michael Beasley

  1. Timberwolves, Grizzlies hope preseason success carries over to games that matter

    Oct 19, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    Love_Beasley

    Preseason games are not irrelevant. A team’s record in them can have some correlation to the regular season. Not so much with the elite teams — nobody thinks Boston is any better at 6-1 in the preseason, nobody is reading much into the Lakers being 2-3. Come deep in the playoffs those teams will still…

  2. NBA Season Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves

    Oct 8, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    Twolves_intro

    Last season: 15-67, second worst record in the NBA last season, although at the end of the campaign they were playing worse ball than the Nets. Head Coach: Kurt Rambis enters his second year with this question: How good a coach is he? I’m not sold we’ll get the answer. The Timberwolves brought him in…

  3. Timberwolves go tall with starting five

    Oct 4, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    Be careful about taking much away from preseason games. Backups get major run, coaches are experimenting, only the guys fighting for jobs are really motivated. But one thing we can take note of from the Minnesota Timberwolves first preseason game (against the Lakers in London), the starting lineup: Luke Ridnour, Wesley Johnson, Michael Beasley, Kevin…

  4. Timberwolves using Michael Beasley at small forward, they may want to ask Miami about that

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:29 PM EDT

    Reports out of Timberwolves camp say that Michael Beasley is playing the three spot, according to the Pioneer Press. Which makes some sense when you think Kevin Love needs to be the starting power forward for Minnesota. Except… Maybe the T-Wolves should call up the Heat and ask how Beasley worked out at the three…

  5. Michael Beasley, soon to discover golf's winter rules

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami has seemingly countless clubs and ways for players to get into trouble. The other thing it has seemingly countless numbers of is golf courses. Ones you can play on pretty much 365. To Michael Beasley’s credit, when he got frustrated and down while disappointing the fans and staff in Miami, he sought solace on…

  6. Ty Lawson, DeMarcus Cousins, Michael Beasley and more getting some run

    Sep 5, 2010, 8:10 PM EDT

    A number of NBA players were having some fun, getting a little run a couple weeks ago for The Goodman League Charity Game (which raises money for Project Giveback, a group that helps make sure the holidays have something special for some of the needy in the Washington D.C. area). Enjoy. Thanks to the Mars…

  7. Derrick Rose got his own, custom made Skittles machine. Top that Durant.

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:39 PM EDT

    Skittles are where it’s at. Forget Lamar Odom and his candy obsession, that’s just one M&M in the bag. More NBA players than you think love Skittles. I mean love. Michael Beasley sung their praises. Kevin Durant’s neighbors bring them to him. There are many more NBA players who you can always catch with a…

  8. David Kahn fined $50k for comments on Michael Beasley

    Jul 23, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    David Kahn is not a big fan of the marijuana. Nor is he a fan of his new acquisition, Michael Beasley, being a fan of the marijuana. It’s okay though: SuperCoolBeas swears his days of using the marijuana are behind him, so he and Kahn are free to ride off into that point guard-obsessed and…

  9. Miami clears out Beasley for cap room, spends some of it on Mike Miller

    Jul 9, 2010, 2:45 AM EDT

    Pat Riley’s work was not done when LeBron James said “Miami” Thursday night. He made two more moves — one to free up cap space by trading away Michael Beasley to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The other was to sign Mike Miller, but doing that will necessitate the big three give back about $1 million a…

  10. Heat near deal to move Beasley sign that LeBron to Miami no smokescreen

    Jul 8, 2010, 4:28 PM EDT

    At this point in the funhouse of mirrors that are the rumors of LeBron James’ next move, reality has been hard to tell from dead ends and distorted reflections. Everything, every reaction looked like it could be the way out. But this afternoon, one tangible piece of evidence came though — the Heat are working…

  11. Another sign LeBron is going to Miami: Deal nearly done to trade Michael Beasley

    Jul 8, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    If you needed one more sure sign that LeBron James is going to sign with Miami, here it is — the Heat are on the verge of trading Michael Beasley. They need to move him to be able to give LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all max deal money. In fact, this trade…

  12. The terrifying possibility of a LeBron-Wade-Bosh triumvirate in Miami inches closer to becoming a reality

    Jun 29, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:12 am: The Miami Herald and other sources are reporting that this summit did not happen in Miami. Turns out Wade spent last weekend in his hometown of Chicago. Although ESPN’s sources say they were all together in Miami. Whatever. See, there is this fancy new technology called the telephone where the three of…

  13. Pat Riley says he's not shopping Michael Beasley, nobody believes him

    Jun 25, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    Sometimes rumors just seem true. Tell me Ke$ha is crazy enough to give bags of dog s%$# to people, and I tend to believe it. Because she may be actually crazier than most of the women I’ve dated. And that’s saying something. Trust me. Tell me that the Heat are shopping Michael Beasley around and…

  14. Michael Beasley wishes he'd stayed in school

    Jun 20, 2010, 10:31 AM EDT

    Jacob Pullen is a talented wing from Kansas State, but not a player rocketing up draft boards. As such, he elected to spend another year in school and wait to see if the future with a senior season would be what’s best for him. What’s interesting is who helped lead him to that decision.  Michael…

  15. Oh, how the stock of Michael Beasley has fallen

    Jun 3, 2010, 8:44 AM EDT

    Remember the Michael Beasley at Kansas State? He killed people from the post. He was an amazing finisher at the rim, with either hand. He could face up and blow by anyone. He worked hard off the ball. He was so fluid. He had 13 30 point, 10 rebound games. He looked like a man…

  16. Miami Heat front office locked up… now about that Wade guy

    May 3, 2010, 4:41 PM EDT

    Miami has a few advantages for attracting free agents. One is, you know, Miami. Warm weather, great food and restaurants, fantastic, um… scenery. Second is the money to spend on a top free agent, so this player can afford all that great food. Third is Dwyane Wade, and the chance to win playing along side…

  17. Could Michael Beasley be traded to the Wizards?

    Apr 30, 2010, 7:36 PM EDT

    Our own Ira Winderman has suggested that the Miami Heat would be best off dumping Michael Beasley for cap space, and if they can get a rack of shootaround basketballs out of it, that was gravy. He’s not alone in South Beach — people are basically done with Beasley. (Well, not Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.)…

  18. Erik Spoelstra is more patient with Michael Beasley than you are

    Apr 29, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley sat the entire second half of game five against Boston. Udonis Haslem hurts his ankle, and Beasley — the number two overall pick — sat. But don’t read anything into that. I mean, why would you? Heat coach Erik Spoelstra thinks things are progressing just fine, he said in his post-season meeting with…

  19. Sign of the future? Michael Beasley sits entire second half.

    Apr 28, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    With their season on the line, with the Miami Heat needing their best players on the floor, Michael Beasley sat. He did not start the second half of game five against the Celtics; he did not touch the court for the most crucial 24 minutes of the Heat’s season. Udonis Haslem played the entire half,…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Dwyane Wade isn't quite ready for his season to be over, goes bonkers in the fourth to down the Celtics in Game 4

    Apr 25, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade had six turnovers, missed eight shots, and botched five free throws in Game 4 against the Boston Celtics. Other than that, he could do no wrong. An enormously impressive 46-point, five-rebound, five-assist performance stands testament to that, and Wade’s performance was capped off brilliantly by scoring 17 of Miami’s 30 points in the…

  21. Winderman: Dumping Beasley might be Heat's best option

    Apr 21, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    Amid the Heat’s epic struggle in its first-round series against the Celtics, and amid Michael Beasley’s no-show against both Kevin Garnett and Glen “Big Baby” Davis in the opening two games, arrives the debate of where Beasley’s trade value stands. Granted, two years is hardly is the best evaluation period for a 21-year-old power forward…

  22. NBA playoffs: East difference-makers could be the change they wish to see in the world

    Apr 16, 2010, 11:39 AM EDT

    While the Eastern Conference playoffs may lack the volatility of the West in the first round, there are still all kinds of characters scrambling about looking to cause mayhem. There’s something to be said about being in a series with no expectations, and underdogs looking to seize the moment can have a field day if…
